Default (Yay) 2008 Pike Peaks White - 57k Miles - Enthusiast

Here are some pics. I promise to post better photos in the future. (I dont have the time to take out my camera and go to the beach/mountains/urban area/etc these days.) These are just quick phone quality.
This was my instagram photo





My Story-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------if you guys are interested
Iv been trying to sell my 1jzvvti supra throughout the whole summer, and the day I decided to daily drive it again was the day I sold it. What a coincidence!

Now iv been looking at different cars for a little more than a month. Priuses, 2008-2015 Camrys, 2010 Audi A4s, 430/460 Lexuses, Frs/Brz, Mustang, Altimas/Gs/ and Zs.

Originally I was just planning on financing a new Camry. It seems nice, and its practical, but there was 2 Z's that stood out to me. A 2003 brickyard and a 2008 pike peaks white. The 2003's owner said she wanted to sell it but refused to meet up with me even though I had cash in hand (weird). The 2008 owner was really communicative and honest.

The color was significant to me because... Theres currently 2 blue cars at the house I reside in right now. I thought itll look weird if theres a 3rd one (and I dont really like blue except the WRB BRZ).

Red - Cop magnet (although I think it looks nice)
Black - Dust/Dirt magnet
Silver - Looks old
Dark Grey - would be my 3rd choice.
Yellow - ew 2005 oil issues
Orange - Cop magnet
White - easy to clean

I have never driven yet alone sat inside any Z's before. I wasnt sure what to expect. Now after that I got it, my opinion on it is that it feels like the eco-boost Mustang and the Frs fused into one car. I it!

It consists of after market stereo equipment such as Pioneer Avic-Z130bt HU, Arc Amp, MB Quart speaker, JL subwoofer, Viper alarm(i need to get a replacement key though) etc. (Stuff I remember from my head).

The owner even put on new Hankook tires (forgot what size, too lazy to go outside to check right now), TPMS, front bumper+fresh paint, renewed registration + smog, oil change, and a bracket for the front license plate (stillen??). (IMO best seller iv communicated in my history) I was happy to hand over the 15k he requested it for. (P.S. the car only has 57K miles on it (if i havent mentioned it yet))

What surprised me was its hard to pump gas in it (iv only tried one place). The pump keeps popping out. Maybe im not putting it at a right angle? Im not sure.

And the place where the water sprays for the windshield wiper is on the assembly itself! This one surprised me the most.
---------------------------------------------------------------------End Story------------------------------------------------

???By the way, does anyone know what diffuser matches the holes shown here?
Theres one in the middle, and there are holes on the bumper on both sides (I only showed one side in the picture).

I drove an 08 Enthusiast in PPW when I was in Cali and that is the reason I bought my Base PPW in 2010 (had to have white too)

Congrats on the purchase and you have slightly less miles than me... mine was at 57k a couple years ago....now it's at 64k. I need to drive more

again welcome and enjoy!

I daily drove mine in Cali for 3 + years but moved to iowa after the navy and didn't really have any fun roads to drive. Now I'm in Kansas City and i can drive more. Put more miles on in 2 months than the previous 2years
